Asteroseismic age determination for dwarfs and giants,
Astronomische Nachrichten, Vol.337, Issue 8-9


Asteroseismology can make a substantial contribution to our understanding of the formation history and evolution of our Galaxy by providing precisely determined stellar properties for thousands of stars in different regions of the Milky Way. We present here the different sets of observables used in determining asteroseismic stellar properties, the typical level of precision obtained, the current status of results for ages of dwarfs and giants, and the improvements than can be expected in the near future in the context of Galactic archaeology.

Key words: asteroseismology / stars: fundamental parameters / stars: oscillations
